I am pasty
These came in one color
Time to contact cosplay friends I know irl about making the ears be less of a different color

When I had my own elf ears, I just used liquid foundation and concealer in my skin tone and I used a little bit of a darker color to accent the folds in the ears. (Sorry, can't think of a better way to explain!)

You wanted hard as nails, cut and dry
But I beg, steal and borrow
I'm so damn good at sorrow
And you don't care for me enough to cry..."

Considering how massive the skin tone difference between me and the ears are, and the fact that I don't really know makeup, I'm definitely gonna get one of my irl cosplaying friends to help me with this

+1 to recommendation of using makeup to cover up the base color of the ear / blend in with natural skin tone.

Rebooting....
I think I would airbrush those first in a flat white to diffuse the main color, then use a pale rose pink to accent, and possibly faint lavender lines for vein tracery.

So, I don’t have any experience w airbrushing or makeup, but I know a couple things about skintones. Here’s what I would do, in theory; in practice, I have no idea if this would work.

1.) cover the whole thing in matte white primer
2.) cover the whole thing again in a very pale slightly yellow-ish peach; this should be as close as possible to your base undertone, the parts that aren’t rosy. For me, my thighs are the best option for finding a relatively large swath of undertone.
3.) airbrush patchy light pinks in multiple layers to mimic skin texture; use your own skin, esp your ears, as a guideline.
4.) add a tiny bit of lavender, also in layers, to parts that are more shadowed.

This is the wreath I made for my Slytherin dad for Christmas a couple years ago. :] He was really happy about it and told me he loves the way it looks. ^-^

You can't really see the snake in the wreath tho, unfortunately. <:/ I'd have to get a close up pic of it, since I painted it green and black. But he put it away in a bin for the year until Christmas comes around again, so these are the only pics for the moment. <x/

(That snake skin on the wall is from his neighbor in Arizona btw, and it was from a Mojave Green Rattlesnake...just uh fyi.)

Looks really cool, Mer! Though tbh, I would have probably pegged it more as generally a woodsy wreath rather than Slytherin specifically... ;>.>

Thanks. :]
Yeh, I think my dad really pays more attention to woodsy, rustic, country sort of décor, so his is much more nature oriented. ^-^
Wish I could show the snake, and the Slytherin pin on the green ribbon in the back tho. :/
